Advantages

Polished concrete has many advantages: it is cost efficient, durable, easy to maintain, dust proof, slip resistant, LEED friendly, versatile, and has increased light reflectivity.

Economical

Not only the cost per square foot can be lower than with other high-quality floor surfaces. With low maintenance costs and a long life-cycle thanks to the concrete's durability polished concrete is a very economical solution in the long run.

Ease of Maintenance

Depending on the foot traffic, weekly mopping is enough to let the floors look like new for years. The applied sealer on top helps to protect the floors from stains and abrasion.

Unbeatable Durability

Concrete itself is a highly durable material that has been used in industrial environments for years. When polishing the floor we densify the concrete even more to make it more resilient.

Versatility

Concrete can take on color and a polished sheen. With a great variety of applicable stains, patterns, or stencils polished concrete floors can be so much more than "cold" or "industrial". Hence, polished concrete can fit in almost every environment.

Safe and Hypoallergenic

With its smooth surface and the ease of cleaning a polished concrete floor it is the perfect solution for dust allergy sufferers. Yet, it is not any more slippery than other hard flooring surfaces.

Environmentally Friendly

With polished concrete floors there's no need of hazardous coatings, or cleaners. Also its high light reflectivity helps reducing the need of artificial lighting. Concrete is not only sustainable itself, it also helps obtaining points to get the building's LEED certification.

Modern and Elegant

Polished concrete floors can be found in high-scale restaurants and luxury homes. With its diversity and a customized design we can make the floor look unique, yet sophisticated.

Applications

Due to the concrete’s durability it can withstand pressure from heavy equipments like cars, trucks, or other machines. Hence, it is a commonly used material for commercial areas such as garages or warehouses. Yet, its durability might become useful in other areas exposed to high foot traffic, high heels, pet claws, or other scratching.
Thanks to various flooring options polished concrete floors can also be used in many interior designs like a hotel foyer or a restaurant, or even in residential environments to give your home a modern look.

The Process

The fact that concrete is a durable material that has a long life span is commonly known. Yet, it is rather having a poor reputation of being a dirty and grey floor. Even though there is so much more to concrete floors than this. Our team transforms them into a stylish and resilient floor solution. The concept is simple yet brilliant! With our special equipment we grind and polish the concrete floors to expose the stronger concrete beneath. This does not only make the floor more durable, there are also no limits to your creativity. With our expertise and your creativity we can customize your floor design to best meet your needs. By coloring it, applying textures and patterns, or adding logo and stencils we make your floor look unique and break new grounds.

Metal Diamond Grinding

The first step in the process is aggressively grinding the concrete to remove any old paint, glue, thinset, or any other superficial contaminant or stain.

Polishing, Staining, and Densifying

The following steps include grinding the concrete floors with resin-bonded diamonds to bring the floors to a polish.  At some point in this step the stain is applied to the floors if desired, and the concrete is densified to harden it and leave it ready for the full polish.

Full Polishing, Sealing, and Burnishing

The final step is to bring the concrete to the desired level of shine, which could be matte, satin, or highly polished.  After this, the floors are sealed with an impregnating sealer and burnished twice.

Aggregate Exposure

You can choose from a floor in which the aggregate is totally exposed, to one that shows very little aggregate.

Class A:
Cream

Class B:
Salt & Pepper

Class C:
 Exposed Aggregate

FAQs

What is a polished concrete floor?
A polished concrete floor is a floor solution for which the concrete gets mechanically grinded in several steps. The quantity of grinding steps depends on the concrete’s condition and hardness. Using a concrete densifier helps hardening and dust-proof the surface.

Can all concrete be polished?
Not all concrete floors can be polished with satisfactory results. To find out if your floor is a good candidate for polishing call us for a free consultation. If your floor is not a good candidate for polishing there are other options to consider like an Epoxy coating.

Will you see cracks in the polished concrete floor?
Our team can patch all cracks within the process of polishing the floor. Small cracks will then blend while grinding the floor. Depending on the crack's size it might be slightly visible after. However, this gives the floor its organic look people are going for when choosing the polished concrete solution.

Are decorative polished concrete floors expensive?
It depends on the design you would like to have. Compared to other high-end floor solutions concrete floors often are an economical alternative. Another factor that needs to be considered is maintenance and cleaning costs. Those being low can you save money in the long run.

Are polished concrete floors slippery?
Polished concrete floors are not any more slippery than other hard flooring surfaces like marble or ceramic tile floors when kept clean and dry.

How much maintenance do polished concrete floor solutions need?
Concrete floors are easy to maintain. The extent always depends on the traffic the floors are receiving. Residential floors with light foot traffic have different needs than commercial spaces with high traffic. With low traffic, simple cleaning like mopping keeps the floors looking like new for many years. Also, we are only using high-quality sealers and top coats that protect the floors from stains and abrasion.
